Guide to math needed to study physics

  1. Jul 31, 2016 #1
    Hi.
    After studied General physics, I want to read some book about Theorical Physics. But Mathematics is very difficult. So can you show me the best way to math needed to study physics? From easy to difficult.
    Thanks for helping

    First of all tell us what math you feel reasonably competent.

    That was not clear.
    Official Mathematics course "requirements" for undergraduate Physics degrees will usually list just Calculus 1,2,3, and a combination course of Introduction to Linear Algebra & Differential equations (if not two actual separate courses). The ACTUAL courses needed for someone who wants to do well go beyond those typically listed program "requirements".

    Calculus 1,2,3? Can you introduce some books about it? I studied vector calculus and I think it in calculus 2. What is calculus 3? I read some books of Theorical Physics about searies, sums, ...And it seems difficult

    1. Calculus and Analytic Geometry 1: Limits, Differentiation, Introduction to Integration, Continuity of Functions, academic and applied problem solving
    2. Calculus and Analytic Geometry 2: Techniques of Integration, Sequences and Series, some use of volumes and Integration, Conic Sections involving Integration
    3. Calculus and Analytic Geometry 3: Multivariable Calculus, Vectors and their use with Calculus,... other stuff...
